In 2005, Brad and Angelina were filming the hit action comedy 'Mr. and Mrs. Smith'. The movie was packed with hot scenes as the two played a married spy couple. The rumors began to brew almost instantaneously. However, Brad was still married to Jennifer Aniston, and the speculations helped fill a lot of tabloids at the time.


Brad divorced Jennifer in October of 2005 and was seen escorting Angelina on her trip to Pakistan in November. It became quite obvious that the two have started possibly the biggest celeb romance ever.

Their life together


Angelina revealed her pregnancy in late 2005, and soon after, Brad adopted Maddox and Zahara, her two adopted children. The couple welcomed their daughter Shiloh in May 2006. Although still unmarried, they seemed like one big, happy family as they even changed the children's last names to Jolie-Pitt.

The two further expanded their family by adopting a son named Pax Thien. Furthermore, in 2008, Angelina gave birth to twins, Vivienne Marcheline and Knox Léon. Theorizing about their marriage became popular at the time, but Brad and Angelina were living in what seemed like a fairy-tale, marriage was not on their minds. However, in 2014, Brangelina became an official married couple in a small, private ceremony at their French chateau.    

The break-up


Brad and Angelina split up in 2016, after only two years of marriage. Having been the most popular celeb couple for years, their break-up is a topic for many speculations.


Angelina filed for divorce in 2016 and cited 'irreconcilable differences' as the reason.  Apparently, things were going downhill for a while and not much could be done. In a recent interview, Angelina talked about how she had hoped the 2015 movie 'By The Sea' was going to rekindle the flame.

Family comes first

Rumors aside, Brangelina, as they were known together, are maintaining a friendly relationship towards each other. Perhaps, Angelina had the best thing to say about the divorce.

We are and forever will be a family. I am coping with finding a way through to make sure that this somehow makes us stronger and closer.
